Coach of the U-23 National Team, Dream Team, Samson Siasia has cried out to the Nigeria Football Federation to come to his rescue by talking to clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League to release their players for preparation for next month’s All -Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville.

Coach Siasia expressed this frustration at Tuesday evening training session at the FIFA Goal Project when he had only eight of the invited players, as the others were not released by their clubs after he permitted them to play last weekend games.

“How can I prepare well for a competition as important as the All Africa Games when clubs in the local scene have refused to release their players for the camping exercise? We have barely two weeks to our first game and up till now I have only 8 players to work with.”

“Most of the club managers called to appeal that we allow their players play last weekend games, a request I approved, with an appeal to them that they should release the players on Monday. This is Tuesday and I still have not seen the players as most of them have called to say their clubs are holding on to them for mid-week games. This is not fair.”
